About Barrels For U
Recycled barrels have a variety of uses that range from storage to building. Keep seed and feed safe from mice. Start a compost bin for your garden. Collect rain water and save at the tap. Barrels also make a convenient place to keep your cleaning or sports gear. Watertight plastic barrels can even be used for floatation devices on docks. Anything and everything can be placed into a barrel and sealed for protection until needed. They stack easily and can be grouped together to support even more storage on top of them. By using barrels you can effectively expand your household or businesses storage area.
Different barrels lend themselves to different uses. Steel barrels (or steel drums) are good for fuel and heavy storage, such as scrap wood or metal or your workspace tools. Stand your brooms, rakes, and shovels upright and secure in the corner of your garage. Or designate a space for your kids' sports gear, bats, sticks, and padding. Plastic barrels are perfect for storing liquids or dry goods such as seed and feed, sap, etc. Any open head plastic barrel can easily become an extra garbage or recycling can, and any closed barrel can become the ideal composter.
Plastic barrels also lend themselves to some very useful specialized jobs. Some of our plastic barrels have been outfitted for use as Rain Barrels, with screened inlets and valve outlets. These rain barrels are great for saving a little money while staying very green. Rain water is great for gardening or for washing the car without drawing too much on the tap. Closed head plastic barrels are also excellent for floats to attach to docks. It's as simple as lashing them to the underside of your dock frame and pushing it out into open water.
Most of our barrels were used in the food industry and do not contain any toxins or hazardous residue. Barrels are rinsed clean before being sold. Our barrels average about 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall. Sorry, we do not ship our barrels. We look forward to seeing you when you come to collect your order.
